Although the Alliance receives State and Federal funding, the grants require the Alliance to match funding demonstrating local support for the projects. “On the Road for a Reason” is the largest fundraiser the Alliance hosts and is important to the sustainability of the services provided by the Alliance.

Since 2003, the Alliance has been in existence in order to reduce the incidence of substance mis-use and abuse in young people. The primary focus of the Alliance is to reduce access to prescription medications often mis-used through Medication Take Back events and to reduce social access for underage drinking through the “Be the Reason” Campaign.

The Alliance is also in its 4th year of the Texas Healthy Adolescent Initiative which started the Student Adult Leadership Service Alliance (SALSA) at Clear View HS. This project partners community adults with high school students to address risk factors in their community such as substance abuse, mental health, and transition to adulthood.
